Curves, Salton Sea Shoreline

Curves, Salton Sea shoreline

The images
We think
We see
Are not
The same
For you
Nor me
For images
Form in
A place
That has
Its own idea
Of space
Where beauty
By necessity
May vanish like
A shallow sea
By the Sun
It’s beauty lost
It's form
~ Egal Bohen

Although Egal Bohen is from the U.K. I can't help but think he was writing about the Salton Sea. Depending on who you ask it's either the most disgusting neglected place on earth, an area of surreal beauty, a birder's paradise, dangerous abandoned towns overrun with tweakers and outlaws or funky camps filled with wonderful outsider art and people who choose to live off the grid. For me it is whatever I want it to be when I'm there.
